TV One March 2010 Highlights; Yes More Hallmark Channel Changes

TV One is still right smack in the middle of its "Way Back When" Black History Month programming in February 2010, with sitcom week all next week in primetime (What's Happening!! is on Monday!), but we here at SitcomsOnline always like to look forward, so we will take a look at TV One March 2010 today.
As of now, there are no schedule changes to the regular line-up. We are told, though that they will be airing The Flip Wilson Show, Richard Pryor Show, and What's Happening!! as regulars sometime this year, so stay with us for that! All three of those shows have premiered this month as part of their Black History month special. Richard Pryor Show only has 5 episodes, so it will likely not air regularly, but maybe will be repeated a few times in the near future. They do have rights to air all three beyond this month, though, so that is good! Anyway, back to March 2010, there are plenty of marathons scheduled. On Sunday March, 7 beginning at 12pm Noon, join the Sutton family for an all-day marathon of season 2 of the popular African American drama series Lincoln Heights. The marathon runs through 10pm and then repeats until 5am.
On Saturday, March 13 beginning at 12 Noon, it's a 'Winter Wedding Wonderland' as TV One presents an all-day sitcom marathon featuring wedding episodes of viewer favorite comedies Amen, Living Single, For Your Love, The Hughleys, Martin, Good Times, A Different World, Sanford & Son, and The Jeffersons. The marathon runs all day and all night through 6am with repeats in the late night.
On Saturday, April 3 beginning at 3pm, it's all the way LisaRaye as TV One presents the "All of Us: All Day LisaRaye" Marathon featuring episodes of the family sitcom focusing on LisaRaye's character Neesee and her plight to find love and happiness while raising her son. The marathon runs through 6am with encores in the late night.

We have yet more Hallmark Channel schedule changes for you. This is our third story on changes for the network this week alone! Beginning Wednesday, February 17 the primetime Hallmark Movie has been moved up from 9pm to 8pm. As a result, starting Wednesday, Feb. 17, Touched By An Angel's 8pm airing will move to 10p. And 7th Heaven will run for an additional hour at 7pm replacing an episode of Touched by An Angel. So, 7th Heaven is airing now in early evenings from 5pm-8pm (and afternoons 12-2pm).
It is very hard to keep track of this network. It is best you click on the label below for Hallmark Channel so you don't miss any schedule changes news on this network. I mean three stories in one week on schedule changes? That is a lot! And we had some last week as well, so it is a lot and you don't want to miss anything! It's like a serialized series. "Previously on Hallmark Channel Schedule Changes..."

TV One January 2010 - A Different World Acquired; TV Land's Make My Day Returns For Final Airings

January 2010 will have a few new shows on TV One! But first, let's get to the stunts and highlights! On Saturday, January 16 beginning at 12pm through 8pm, TV One airs the "Martin 'Radio Rave' Marathon" that features episodes of the popular TV One sitcom dealing with storylines with Martin at his job as a radio talk show host. An encore of the marathon begins at 10:30pm through 6am.
The very next day on Sunday, January 17, beginning at 12pm, TV One presents the "Living Single 'Queen Regine' Marathon" that features episodes of the popular TV One sitcom focusing on Kim Fields character Regine in all her diva glory. The marathons airs though 6pm then an encore of the Living Single Reunion will air in the 6pm hour.
Beginning on Tuesday, January 19 at 9pm and continuing through Thursday, January 21, TV One presents the premiere of an all-new sitcom from the producers of Martin and The Jamie Foxx Show entitled Love That Girl starring Tatyana Ali (TV One Access, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air) and Phil Morris. In the sitcom, a young woman (Ali) looks for a second chance in life by obtaining her real estate license and begins working with her father (Morris) who owns a real estate company. When her unemployed brother unexpectedly moves in with her, the world that she was trying to create is suddenly turned upside down and life will never be the same. Other characters include wacky neighbors who always have an opinion on her life, the best friend who owns a beauty salon, and her father's ghetto fabulous assistant. Encore airing are scheduled for 12am each night. Four episodes will air.
And finally, the big stuff! On Monday, January 25 beginning at 10pm, TV One brings two new shows to their prime-time landscape with the additions of the sitcom A Different World airing back to back episodes at 10pm & 10:30pm and the family drama series Lincoln Heights airing at 11pm. Both new acquisitions will air nightly Monday-Friday. As a result, there will be schedule changes made starting this day. Amen returns to the regular schedule and will air at 8am, followed by an episode of The Jeffersons at 8:30am, both replacing an hour of Half & Half. Good Times will take the 9am hour replacing originals. New York Undercover moves from 3pm to 11am, replacing an hour of originals. Originals replace Eve and Martin hours from 12-2pm. The 2pm hour will see an hour of The Hughleys, replacing Living Single. At 3pm The PJ's returns to the schedule and will air in the hour. The 4pm hour is now Sanford & Son instead of Divorce Court, which slides to the 5pm hour, replacing an hour of All of Us. The 6-8pm block remains the same with an hour of The Jeffersons at 6pm and half-hour each of Martin and Good Times in the 7pm hour. The nightly 8pm-11pm marathons are no more, as the new primetime line-up will have half-hours of Martim, Good Times, Living Single, and The Hughleys from 8-10pm leading into an hour of A Different World at 10. The nightly marathons had Martin on Mondays, Good Times Tuesdays, Between Brothers Wednesdays, and Living Single Thursdays, but they will be replaced with that primetime schedule starting Jan. 25. For late night, at 11pm as we mentioned it will be drama Lincoln Heights replacing Martin/Sanford & Son. The 12 midnight hour will have have Half & Half and Eve, replacing an hour of Living Single. A Different World and Lincoln Heights will encore in the 1am and 2am hours replacing a movie. And finally, the primetime block encore from 3-5am will be replaced by a movie.
There will be no changes made to weekends.

As we already announced, TV Land will air the final episodes of Make My Day all next week at 10pm. The holiday season has arrived, so in the spirit of giving, TV Land is airing the hilarious original comedic hidden camera series Make My Day, beginning Monday, December 21 and wrapping up on Christmas morning, December 25 during "TV Land's 10th Annual Merrython." The 30-minute series takes a positive spin on pranking as hidden cameras capture the weird coincidences, extraordinary situations and surprise celebrity appearances that occur for deserving participants over the course of a seemingly "normal" day. Kenan Thompson takes viewers through each outrageous episode of Make My Day. The series is executive produced by Michael Davies and is produced for TV Land by Embassy Row, David Granger and Will Macdonald of Monkey Kingdom and Sony Pictures Television (SPT). SPT is also the distributor of the series.
The series guarantees that each worthy participant will experience his or her best day ever, from a wannabe rapper from New Jersey joining musician Lil Jon on a spontaneous live radio interview to a manager of a high-end pet store ending up on the set of a telenovela spoof with her favorite heartthrobs, Desperate Housewives' Jesse Metcalfe and Dancing With The Stars' Cristian de la Fuente, to a guitar shop owner finding himself in a bowling match partnered with The Sopranos star Vincent Pastore and meeting NFL wide receiver Amani Toomer. The unsuspecting stars of each episode of Make My Day are bound to run into their favorite actors, be given tickets to the event of their dreams or hang out with their most beloved professional athlete as each episode culminates in one of the best days of their lives.
The series premiered in August and was pulled after only 2 episodes, so the final four will now finally air.

TV One September 2009 Highlights; Summer 2009 TCA Tour: NBC; Donna Reed Show Season 2 DVD Giveaway!

TV One has announced their September 2009 schedule and highlights. There are no changes to the regular schedule, so we are not certain if this is the fall line-up or not. My guess is we will see changes in October and that will be the fall line-up. But anyway, TV One has many stunts in September!
On Labor Day (Monday, September 7) beginning at 10am through 8pm (encores 8pm-6am), TV One proudly introduces the African American drama series Lincoln Heights, to its series roster with an all-day marathon event of all 10 episodes from the first season of this groundbreaking ABC Family original drama series. In the show, when police officer Eddie Sutton packs up his family and moves back to the inner-city neighborhood where he grew up, he faces the struggle to balance the safety and happiness of this family with his desire to change the neighborhood. The series stars Russell Hornsby, Nikki Micheaux, Erica Hubbard, Mishon Ratliff, Robert Adamson, and Rhyon Nicole Brown. We are not sure yet if repeats are joining the regular schedule anytime soon, but it will not be joining the September schedule, that's for sure. The series is entering its fourth season on ABC Family, but not sure why TV One is airing a marathon. Maybe they will pick up the off-net rights when eligible?
On Saturday, September 19 beginning at 1pm through 9pm (select encores from 2am-6am), TV One celebrates September brides with a 'Battle of the Brides' marathon of two classic sitcom viewer favorites Amen and Good Times in the "Battle of the Thelmas" marathon. Which Thelma has the best romance and wedding - Thelma Evans from Good Times or Thelma Frye from Amen? Episodes in this marathon feature the romance and wedding of Thelma and Keith from the classic sitcom Good Times in addition to the romance and wedding(s) of Thelma and Ruben from the classic sitcom Amen.
On the next day on Sunday, September 20 beginning at 12 Noon though 8pm (select encores from 2:30am-6am), it's a "Movin' On Up" Marathon as TV One presents a marathon of the classic sitcom The Jeffersons. Viewers can join George, Weezie, and the rest of the crazy characters in this special marathon of the longest running African American sitcom in the history of television. The series is still not returning to the regular schedule, but maybe a return in October is likely? But for now enjoy this marathon!
Stay tuned for October, because I think we'll see changes and perhaps new additions then!

NBC and its cable networks are up today at the summer 2009 TCA press tour. First up at the panel is Wake Up with Al, the new Weather Channel series with Al Roker. Then we have the executive sesson, followed by panels on new NBC series Community and Trauma. Lunch follows with Bravo's Top Chef Las Vegas. More panels follow of White Collar (USA Network), Syfy's Stargate Universe & Alice, and NBC's Mercy and Jay Leno Show. NBC Universal's All-Star Party follows sponsored by Oxygen's The Naughty Kitchen with Blythe Beck.
Stay tuned for any key announcements.

We have 3 copies of The Donna Reed Show - Season Two DVD for giveaway thanks to the fine folks at Virgil Films and Entertainment. It's now available in stores and from online retailers.
When you hear that ringing of the telephone, you know it is time for more of The Donna Reed Show on DVD! Season Two of The Donna Reed Show brings the 38 episodes from the 1959-1960 season of the series to DVD on a four disc set.
Donna Reed, the title star, plays Donna Stone, a woman that is proud to be a housewife based upon her perception of what a housewife is. Carl Betz plays Alex, her husband, who has a successful career as a physician. She has two children, Jeff (Paul Petersen) and Mary (Shelley Fabares). The series is much like most other sitcoms from the era in a sense, but at the same time, it is different. While it certainly wasn't the first family sitcom or the first sitcom with a female lead, it was among the first successful family sitcoms WITH a female leading character. The episodes mostly centered around Donna and her life, although that doesn't mean that the other characters never got story lines. She always liked to think of herself as more than just a housewife, somewhat of a domestic engineer so to speak, but that doesn't mean that the series was a new wave in feminism or anything like that. It was still a light-hearted late '50s/early '60s family sitcom. But a great family sitcom, for sure.
You can read our review of the DVD, purchase the DVD now, and enter the DVD contest if you're eligible! Make sure you read the contest rules first before entering. Good luck!

ABC Family Fall 2009; Me-Too August 2009 Daily Marathons; Summer 2009 TCA Tour: The CW

Our fall 2009 schedules barrage continues today with ABC Family September 2009! We are not 100% sure if it is their fall schedule but there will be a schedule change to the weekday line-up starting Monday, Sept. 14! The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air will now also air on weekdays! The show will air weekdays in the 6pm hour replacing My Wife & Kids, which moves to 1pm replacing Sister, Sister. Sister, Sister will still air in the 7am hour (and on BET and Gospel Music Channel). So how on earth is Fresh Prince airing on weekdays when ABC Family only had weekend rights? It is very interesting. It looks to me as Viacom (Nick at Nite and The N) will lose the rights to the series and ABC Family is now picking up the rights for weekday evenings as well. ABC Family will continue to air the series on Saturday nights as well. So it looks like TBS will still have the daytime rights while ABC Family has the evening rights on both weekdays and on weekends now. I'm not 100% sure if Viacom is losing rights, so we will have to see when we announce both the Nick at Nite and The N's fall schedules. The N has already replaced Fresh Prince since last night, as Degrassi now airs Mon-Thurs 2-4am...so is that the reason for removal? There is still a Fresh Prince week-long marathon scheduled on The N for Aug. 17-21 from 7pm-12am. Is that the farewell? Nick at Nite airs the show still Mon-Thurs nights from 3-6am, so no signs yet of removal, but with Everybody Hates Chris coming in September, maybe that is a replacement?
Elsewhere on ABC Family, The Secret Life of the American Teenager has its mid-season finale on Monday, Sept. 7 at 8pm. An all-day marathon will lead into it from 11am-8pm. 10 Things I Hate About You has its season finale the next night on Tuesday, Sept. 8 at 8pm. Lincoln Heights will have its season four premiere on Monday, Sept. 14 at 8pm, as Greek continues to air new season three episodes at 9pm. Ruby & the Rockits will air repeats at 8pm leading into new episodes at 8:30pm on Sept. 15 and 22, with the season finale on Sept. 22 at 8:30pm. AFV will air Tuesdays in primetime from 8-11pm starting Sept. 29, shifting the movie to Wednesdays 8-10pm starting Sept. 30. There will be an AFV marathon on Saturday, Sept. 26 from 3-11pm to get ready for the all-new season on ABC.
Movie wise, the ABC Family original movie The Wedding Date starring Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney premieres Sunday, Sept. 13 at 9pm. Theatrical movies include the premiere of Shanghai Noon and a special edition of Dirty Dancing.
